The number of women on the boards of New Zealand's listed companies is rising slowly, NZX figures released today show.

Among the 39 companies that released their gender diversity statistics in the three months to June, only 11 per cent of directors were women.

While men still heavily outnumber women in boardrooms, the balance is changing gradually in favour of women.

In the six months to June, women accounted for 10 per cent of directors. In 2013, the proportion was just 8 per cent female.

The proportion of female senior executives at listed companies has declined slightly over the same period.

While women accounted for 23 per cent of company officers last year, in the three months to June the female proportion has dropped to 22 per cent, the NZX said.
